To hear Orange County teenagers tell it, spending two weeks slaving over a grill, picking up trash or directing traffic at the county fair is tradition: It's just what you do every summer. Becky Bailey-Findley, chief executive and general manager of the fair, estimates that 30% of its employees are teenagers. "This becomes a good place to make some quick money," she said. Some teenagers pay off their first car with their fair wages, or put away money for college.
